Art Exhibitions

Steele Lane Community Center Steele Lane Community Center - 415 Steele Lane Don Kelsey, Chance Encounters June 26 – August 16, 2012

Some call it luck. Don Kelsey calls them "Chance Encounters” a collection of photographs from the past 40 years that would be difficult or impossible to recreate. Never embellished or staged. Kelsey likes to have fun with subjects and titles, so you will find a bit of humor, too. His photographic style is self-taught, striving for curiosity and spontaneity that is fresh with every viewing. He favors simple, uncluttered compositions emphasizing color, form and light. This exhibit will also include some pictures not currently in his regular portfolio.

Susan Dill Cooper: Landscape Paintings August 21 – October 11, 2012

A Virginia native, Susan Cooper’s work primarily depicts her home of Humboldt County's landscapes, garden flowers and birds. Creativity has been an essential part of her life since the age of four. "I am a late bloomer. I have for many years been an art educator and art therapist, and finally listened to my own advice. Moving small everyday reverences from my mind, to hand, to canvas is one of my largest joys and comforts. Translating the natural world, my travels, the faces and places I love have been my efforts. Oils give me the lush world of feeling and depth I want to convey." Most days she can be found art-making in various media from mask-making to mosaics with all ages. She is artist-in-residence at East High School, a continuation high school in Fortuna, California. Cooper is also the gallery director for Truchas Gallery, Los Bagels in Eureka, California. View Susan’s work online at www.susandillcooper.com and www. arcataartisans.com

October through January Exhibits To Be Announced

Finley Community Center - 2060 W. College Avenue The Tuesday Afternoon Photography Group August 14 – September 20, 2012 Reception: Thursday, August 16, 5-7pm

This group of approximately twenty artists meets three times a month. We share our work, encouraging each other to perfect our craft. We take field trips (provided the weather is dry enough) to find new material for our lenses to capture. We constantly try new approaches to our photography and we continue to explore the software available to us along with the incredible range of results we can achieve in the digital darkroom. This exhibit provides a window into the work of many of our artists. Each brings their own unique perspective to the medium. This is a celebration of “seeing” – of finding the unique in the everyday. When you leave the exhibition, we hope you will look at your world with different eyes, taking a moment to find the remarkable in what you are seeing.

“Lost & Found” an Exhibition August 14 – September 20, 2012 Reception: Thursday, August 16, 5-7pm

Assemblage as an art form gets its connection to an audience through nostalgia and things that are familiar. Taking unrelated items and creating a new reality for these found and discarded objects, often elicits sympathetic responses from viewers. Each artist in this exhibit uses this medium of expression to arouse our general curiosities around connecting 'humanity' to inanimate objects. Interest in assemblage and found object art lies in the implied, the hidden and the recreated story of the materials. While the original function of most of the objects are fairly ordinary (watches, tools, bottle caps, books, dolls), when they are put together with other unrelated items they are transformed into an object to be contemplated. Featured Artists: Rebeca Trevino, Simmon Factor, Allegra Burke, Mark Brudzinski, Mary Bramwell, Thomas Pratt, Cat Kaufman.

Finley Community Center Finley Community Center - 2060 W. College Avenue Senior Show September 25 – November 15, 2012 Reception: Thursday, September 27, 1-4pm

Celebrating our 15th Senior Art Show! Make sure to attend the reception and enjoy the music, coffee and cookies, and art demonstrators! This show highlights the art of Sonoma County Seniors (over 60). Its goal is to enhance seniors’ lives by encouraging the joy of creativity while providing an opportunity to share their art in a professional setting. The exhibit will include oils, pastels, watercolors, mixed media, sculpture, woodworking, photography and much more. Artwork was created by beginning to professional senior artists affiliated with agencies that either provide art classes or serve older adults. Some of the represented agencies are the nine Sonoma County Senior Centers, Becoming Independent, Sonoma County Indian Health Center and the Sonoma County Woodworkers. This exhibit is sponsored by the Adult and Aging Division of the Sonoma County Human Services Department.

ALTERED Group Exhibit November 20 – December 20, 2012 Reception: Thursday, November 29, 5-7pm

Altered; changed, reformed, transformed, different, new, improved. A step away or towards an established paradigm. This show is a collection of local artists that are creating alternative art; sharing their ideas, thoughts, opinions and emotions. The intent is to bring the alternative art scene to a mainstream audience and alter the perception of the traditionalists. It is an opportunity for local, recognized artists to showcase alternative art forms learned "outside the lines", with the chance to display their creative minds on canvas. We all live a significant period of time in our imagination; as artists we just want to show what we see.

Kathy Pallie November 20 – December 20, 2012 Reception: Thursday, November 29, 5-7pm

During my commercial art career, I worked with many different materials creating 3-dimensional objects. When I retired and started working with clay, I realized that clay was an exciting and wonderfully tactile material which I had to explore further. Inspired by Nature, my work reflects the unlimited variety of textures, patterns, and energy I find in my natural surroundings. Texture and the tactile sense have always been an important part of my work. I hand build with clay slabs, coils, and extruded shapes and use various clay bodies, firing processes, glazes and finishes for making different forms and surface textures. I enjoy creating artworks which not only express my love of Nature, but which also allow me to bring the essence of the outdoors into interior spaces. Many of the pieces that will be in the Finley exhibition can be viewed on my website at kathypallieclayart.com.

Nik Catalina: Photographs January 8 – February 7, 2013 Reception: Thursday, January 10, 5-7pm

Nik Catalina is an emerging fine art photographer capturing imagery he hopes will inspire, enlighten, entertain and engage viewers of his work. Nik has long been fascinated with the magic and wonder of Nature and its awesome, ever-changing beauty. "The simple yet powerful transition from the artist's eye to viewers of the images captured conveys unique and individual interpretation where the artist and the viewer, though perhaps never having met... are at once united in what I like to call a 'psycosmic' (psychic cosmos) connection for all time by virtue of the exchange."

Greg Damron: Nature Photography September 12 – October 17, 2012 Reception: Friday, September 14, 5-7pm

Cameras lured me away from my paints and sketchbooks around age 16. Living beings, humanity, adventure and religious ceremony compete continually for my attention. My journeys direct my photographic style evident in a range that reaches across a spectrum from fine art to documentary themes. My grandparent’s family photographs from around WWI, early 20th century pictorialists and colonial African prints entrance me. My career in photography launched at University in the early 1990s where I learned the rigorous discipline of printing by demanding professors. My craft has taken me across the globe for environmental and cultural documentary projects. I am working mainly in digital formats in recent years as an environmental documentarian, portraitist, and fine artist. My work can be seen at www.wildvinestudios.com

Lauri Luck: Paintings October 23 – December 19, 2012 Reception: Friday, October 26, 5-7pm

Art and dogs have always been part of my life. I find both to be irresistible forces so it is understandable that they would eventually come together. My drawings and paintings have taken me through a myriad of subject matter but I never feel happier with a piece than those with a dog in it. Eventually the dog began to take center stage in my work and the landscapes of farm, forest and river as well as the patterns and abstractions of interiors, became the sets. The primary emphasis of my paintings is on figurative imagery constructed in vibrant colors. The paint is applied in loose energetic brush strokes. The surface is fragmented in patterns of shapes and light, enlivened by the juxtaposition of flattened perspectives, illusionistic forms and space played one against the other.

David Kingwill January 9 – March 6, 2013 Reception: Friday, January 18, 5-7pm

When I start an abstract painting, it is not always apparent what will happen, in fact, usually it is not. I may have an image or feeling about the result, but the process generally involves reacting to ongoing developments in the work I start with a prestretched or unstretched canvas and acrylic color, diluted with water. I pour the paint on the canvas and guide it towards an intriguing shape. Once I have achieved a beginning with shape and color, I must then choose the next color and shape. After that, anything can happen.

SRCT Director’s Note Fall/Winter 2012-13 Bridget Palmer

This Fall I'm offering school age children the exciting opportunity to perform in Harry Potter & The Chamber of Secrets. Our Tiny Tots class on Saturday mornings will perform Tales From Pixie Hollow, which gives me a fun opportunity to weave together several fairy stories that include characters many of the children know and love. We are going to depart from our tradition of rehearsing a large show after school with up to 30 children at Proctor Terrace School, and instead we will be offering a small class of up to 15 students at Proctor Terrace and another after school class at Strawberry School. We will still be offering the Saturday Ensemble class for 7-12 year olds who prefer to do drama on Saturdays. I look forward to working with your child soon! Feel free to contact me if you have questions. Bridget Palmer Director, Santa Rosa Children's Theater bridget@artoflivinginstitute.org

Santa Rosa Children’s Theater, sponsored by Santa Rosa Rec & Parks, provides quality performing arts to children. All instructors have formal training and experience in stage craft. Children are always the most important priority in every production.

No one sets off on an outdoor adventure expecting a medical problem to occur. However, a potentially hostile environment and lack of facilities can quickly cause a routine situation to escalate into a real medical emergency. There is no substitute for preparedness. Everyone venturing into the wilds should have an understanding of basic first aid and wilderness rescue. Do you know how to handle a sprained ankle or how to properly splint a broken bone? Would you know what to do if a camper fell into a fire? Do you know what percentage of rattlesnake bites are dry bites (no venom), and how to tell the difference? If not, this informative, interactive and fun workshop is perfect for the experienced backpacker as well as family day hikers. Note: Standard First Aid is required as a prerequisite. .

Class Level Descriptions Beginning Tennis- is for players who have never taken a class before, and want to learn the fundamentals. Junior (4 to 18yrs) players should stay in beginning tennis until they can rally with other kids consistently. For adults, they should only stay in beginning tennis for one class session. Advanced Beginning- is a secondary class for adults. They should have taken a beginning class before or have reasonable control rallying with other players. This is an introduction class to score keeping and playing so if you already know how to play matches, you should be in adult Drills or Intermediate classes. For juniors you should be able to keep rallies with other juniors but not have match play experience.

No one sets off on an outdoor adventure expecting a medical problem to occur. However, a potentially hostile environment and lack of facilities can quickly cause a routine situation to escalate into a real medical emergency. There is no substitute for preparedness. Everyone venturing into the wilds should have an understanding of basic first aid and wilderness rescue. Do you know how to handle a sprained ankle or how to properly splint a broken bone? Would you know what to do if a camper fell into a fire? Do you know what percentage of rattlesnake bites are dry bites (no venom), and how to tell the difference? If not, this informative, interactive, and fun workshop is perfect for the experienced backpacker as well as family day hikers. Note: Standard First Aid is required as a prerequisite. Min 8 Max 20 Instructor: Eric Peterson’s professional career includes training as a Rural Paramedic, EMT Certification/Instructor, Firefighter for U.S. Forest Service & Reserve Fireman, Health Instructor for Sonoma County School Districts, and a graduate of U.C.

New!

This program is based on the fun, competitive game of water polo but is designed for kids 5-7 years old!

SHARK PUPS 2 (Ages 8-12)

New!

Along with Shark Pups 1, this class allows kids who aren't quite ready for the full water polo experience but are looking to further build water skills, to practice water polo techniques.

It's recommended that kids enrolled in this class be able to swim 25 yds without aide or rest, be able to tread water for 1 minute without aide, and enjoy playing in the water.
